Trifextra 87

This weekend the challenge is  ‘ for 33 of your own words about a famous trio. The trio could be from literature, from history or from pop culture’.

James gasped.

His skull cracked and icy, blackness invaded his head.


I’m not sure where this came from – it is unusually dark for me.
